New Sewing Machine!

Posted on September 20th, by Amy in sewing, The Sewing Summit. 16 comments

Hi there!  Yesterday I made a big loop around the mountains, collecting boxes of goodies from supporters of the Sewing Summit, and depositing most of those boxes with Erin, since she has a bit more space (or used to!) to store a *few* boxes.  This is one of the boxes, that stayed with me:

From the very beginning Erin and I envisioned a classroom full of machines, so that friends could come by airplane, and still have hands on learning time at the Sewing Summit.  Thanks to our friends at Baby Lock, that vision will be realized in just a couple of weeks!

In the final weeks leading up to the Sewing Summit, there’s some last minute sewing to accomplish, and a new machine to familiarize myself with.  Just getting it out of the box, there’s some cool features I wasn’t expecting!  I’ll fill you in later this week, after I’ve spent a few hours sewing with her. (You can learn more about Grace, here)


Have I told you I’m excited to meet blog friends in real life?  I am!  I’m also a little nervous, and jittery about all the details!  I don’t bite my nails, but I do bite the side of my nail, and I’ve nearly drawn blood on my thumb.  Time to find another way to get that nervous energy out!  Everything is coming together, and I know it’s going to be a great weekend.

  1. I just bought a Grace the end of July. I had to take my machine to the shop and was told it would be up to 3 weeks before it was fixed. I had already been away from sewing for 3 weeks (at daughter’s) and I was having withdrawals. Been wanting a small machine to take to retreats, etc so Grace was it. She has been great, I have even quilted several doll quilts on her.

  2. Oh my goodness!! I’m so excited!!! :) My mind keeps wandering to thoughts about the summit! I still can’t believe I’m going and can’t believe it’s coming up so soon! I can’t wait to meet you and all the other fabulous ladies there!

    And thanks for ensuring that there will be machines on hand – I”m hoping to fly with just carry-on luggage myself… wish me luck! LOL!
